“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’ ””. 2 Chronicles 20:17 NIV
Today we have a hurting world, all of us have hurt. When big moments of pain hit the airwaves and we see how evil the world is; what does it do to you. Like much of us you look away from your own pain, run and help. Don't you dare say, it's to far away I can't do anything. Because you have the greatest gift, the greatest power - that is to pray!
This morning in reflection that yesterday I was so personally sad, missing my Mother. Missing what was my norm, and truly sad to be alone. Even though I KNOW I am never alone. I still felt alone, I felt needy, you know one of those days where you just know you need a big hug from one of your important persons. With no one around to give that, yes I look to Him. Don't get me wrong, I still want my hugs, I don't want to live my life alone. But, let's all realize how grateful we are when their is a famine, because we grow, we learn, we get creative. We are in those times now - all of us!!!
I realized okay I get it, this is the pain of child birth, it is the pain of what is yet the be born. A very important person in my life pointed this out a time or two, being pregnant, giving birth (is everything great), so many instances where he has this overwhelming experience. He even likened it to his water breaking, to express that extreme extreme emotion and pain. Honestly, I didn't see his point, I thought what does a guy know about this pain. Now, I don't know how I missed it, it is so real. So basic, so simple, and yes so extreme!! You see we all have our destiny in us, we have HIS plan IN us, all we have to do is recognize that those seeds have been planted and have taken root. Like Sarah believe that child, that king of nations is planted in your womb... With All Odds Against her. What 80 year old has EVER had a baby. NONE. This is God telling us, stop disbelieving, stop putting so many limits on His plans. We need to accept, believe, have faith and just smile because we are awaiting that special birth!! The Birth of what He has indeed planted. On the other side, notice the seeds you have planted and take joy in their births, when you work so hard to raise a child, teach a student, mentor a person; and they finally fly like an eagle. There that is your birth, but what happened before that. A lot of crazy, a lot of pain, and plenty of places for you to give up. Don't give up!!
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31 NIV
So today, let's give thanks for our opportunity to see evil, that evil has NO HOLD, in Jesus Name, and that it is so much in our face - it causes us all to act - evil and these terrible acts occur out of rejecting God. So reach out, minister, pray and Smile!
